Her last job was at the Conrad Super 8 Motel where she worked at the Breakfast Bar and enjoyed visiting and getting to know new people.
Cleo enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping with her family, and bowling on Conrad Women’s League. She was an avid card player and was involved with two different bridge clubs and played pinochle at the Senior Center. Cleo’s greatest joy was watching her grandchildren in all their endeavors.
